Derrick Posted January 29, 2015 Report Share Posted January 29, 2015 I am starting this thread to encourage the garnering of information regarding easier and more economical ways of exploring this ant-plant rich island. Please add to this thread and perhaps others can start a thread to areas of the world they are familiar with. http://www.pngholidays.com.au/ There are no Papua New Guinea tours devoted to epiphytic myrmecophytes, but there are a number of tours designed for birdwatchers, including tours of the Gazelle Peninsula, on New Britain Island which would have been a far cheaper way to travel than my private visit. Piggy-backing on such tours will provide opportunities for photographing myrmecophytes; for example, the following tour includes Varirata National Park where various hydnophytums and myrmecodias are very common and an Anthorrhiza species may also be found. http://www.pngholidays.com.au/Activities/Birds-Animals.php?we_objectID=149 Trekking in probable Anthorrhiza habitat. http://www.pngholidays.com.au/Activities/Trekking.php?we_objectID=181 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
